Incremental reading is a technique for reading articles and learning/retaining information.

Incremental reading seems to combine several techniques into a package:

  • It uses the regular spaced repetition suite of techniques (spaced repetition and active recall)
  • It mixes learning of new material with review of old material (in particular, one encounters completely new material during incremental reading, unlike a regular spaced repetition flashcard program where each card must be created individually). In other words, the temporal pacing controls both the pacing of new material and of the review.

Software

SuperMemo seems to have the most complete implementation of incremental reading, but there is a plugin for Anki that implements some of the features of incremental reading.
